Project Description

 
Our Mission

We exist to help millennial women create a healthy and paralleled connection between their mind and money; all while uncovering how the two are inherently linked.

Behind The Brand

Booked ‘N Busy is home to ambitious, inquisitive, and otherworldly women who are rewriting their relationship with money and wellness and merging the two too manifest an abundant life. 

We provide a unique blend of practical, psychological, and mystical resources to make finance and wellness more attainable to diverse communities. If you ever wondered how to step into your highest form without having to sacrifice your desire for wealth, you’ve come to the right place.

Healing your mind, body, soul [and of course: bank account] can seem like a daunting task. But fortunately for you; nothing is impossible. We’re here to support your journey to mental, spiritual, and financial freedom, because lacking one or the other is no fair way to thrive in this lifetime.

We welcome you to join our digital safe-haven as we unplug from societal constructs and connect to our inner fortitudes.

Why We Wake Up Everyday

In America, a female's life expectancy is 81: 5 years longer than a male's life expectancy of 76. On average, women earn 81 cents for every dollar earned by men. In other words, women earn less than men but live longer. How are we supposed to outlive our counterpart but without the means needed to survive thrive?

Women experience extreme adversity while earning and learning about money. From unfair wages to raising a family, a woman's mental, emotional and financial health risk being unbalanced without the proper resources and support to help nurture her well-being.

Because of this, we're dedicated to educating, inspiring, and bringing joy to our community with the help of beautifully designed and thoroughly researched content.

Our Target Market

We believe that women from all color, class, and creed deserve the tools needed to reach financial and spiritual bliss. Our content strategy is aimed toward millennial women between the ages of 25 and 32 [primary] and 18 and 24 [secondary]. Living online gives us the advantage of tapping into the lives of women across the globe.

Your Support Matters

Bootstrapping the business was possible at first, however, due to a spur of layoffs across the nation, we need your assistance to get to the next level. With your support, you are helping the Booked 'N Busy community reach the following goals:

  1. $2,000 will be invested into Social Strategy. Our Social Team will participate in a 12-week lady-led workshop where we will learn the ins and outs of Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest and how to create a strategy plan to grow our community and increase conversion. We decided to invest in a workshop in order to nurture our Social Team's professional development.
  2. $2,000 will be invested into E-Marketing Content and Strategy. Outside of social networks, our monthly newsletters will contain curated information on the latest and greatest in finance, wellness and how to keep a healthy balance of the two. Subscribers will have the opportunity to participate in contests, Q&As and much more! We decided to invest into a freelance E-Marketing Strategist who is well-seasoned in her field and in need of financial relief during the pandemic. We will also invest a portion into our freelance Creative and Marketing teams.
  3. $1,000 will be invested into our Squarespace Website. A majority of our experiences will live online. Because of so, a user-friendly, high converting web design is needed to ensure the best experience is given to our community. We are investing into a website with a strong home page, content-heavy blog, interactive workshops, a galore or resources and a community page where members can interact with one another.
The Founder

Booked 'N Busy was founded by Chicago native, Alyssa Ackerman. Growing up less fortunate than others, Alyssa relayed heavily on her peers, community, and books to keep her education growing and her mind flowing. In her early 20s, Alyssa relocated to New York City to jumpstart her life purpose as a gracious leader. What started off as hopping from one business idea to the next, Alyssa realized that she had to withdraw from attempting to keep up with her peers and instead look within to find the answers she seeks. After months of research, meditation, spiritual guidance, and getting to know her true self, Alyssa realized that her biggest interest was creating a platform where women can unplug and connect, just as she needed. With a strong skillset in creativity, team and project management, operations, and writing, Alyssa tied all of her assets together to form Booked 'N Busy during the early months of 2019.
